In brief: Needs evaluation

Many things come to mind.
You may have significant lung disease and you may have significant heart and vascular disease. None of your symptoms are reassuring to me. I would schedule to see my pcp asap and get an evaluation. If you are in distress, go to nearest er or call 911.

Shortness of breath is one of those red flag, potentially serious symptoms; pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, asthma, heart failure can be possible causes.
Commonly, anxiety disorders can give us such a feeling as well, and might explain your situation since it comes an goes; apparently at random. Definitely would get checked out by a qualified doctor and should have a chest x ray taken.
